Day 10The spoilt brat that has been driving the entire ward demented with her temper tantrums has finally discharged herself, the relief is unbelievable! We still have all the other crap here to deal with but getting rid of our little darling has resulted in all of us cheering up quite significantly. On the downside I've seen a nurse use a dirty sock to clean of one the name boards, I practically had to lift my own chin off the floor manually as I just couldn't believe a nurse could or would do that. We also have a dead body in the room opposite us, the gentleman died of hospital acquired pneumonia at around 11 am this morning, the family were here within 15 minutes to see him, they left two and a half hours ago but his body still hasn't been removed, I have no clue what the protocol is in situations like this. It's now visiting time so I presume they won't be moving him before that ends! Maybe they'll do it after visiting hours are over, however I have a horrible feeling he may just be left here till after the ward has settled down for the night, as that's not going to be for around another 10-11 hours I hope to goodness his window is open, bear in mind the temperature on the ward is around 25 degrees C things could get a bit ripe round here. There's nothing like being given dignity after death and this is certainly nothing like being giving dignity. I thought this place couldn't appal me any more than it had already, I guess I was wrong. RIP Robert.
